Intelligent Long-Duration Thermal Energy Storage

Viking Cold Solutions™ is a thermal energy management company focused on making the world’s cold storage systems more efficient, flexible, and sustainable while protecting food quality. Our long-duration Thermal Energy Storage (TES) Systems, with a levelized cost of energy (LCOE) less than 2 cents per kWh, have been installed inside frozen food production, storage, and distribution facilities around the world. Viking Cold’s innovative application of environmentally-friendly Phase Change Materials (PCM) and cloud-based intelligent controls and monitoring combines energy storage with efficiency to enable flexible energy management and reduced energy costs.

Viking Cold Solutions enables companies to achieve up to a 35% or greater reduction in energy costs through efficiency and energy storage flexibility.

Thermal Energy Storage (TES) leverages phase change material to store energy in the form of cold for future use. It is engineered to freeze/thaw at specific temperatures commonly used in frozen cold storage (-20°F to 32°F or -28°C to 0°C). This allows the refrigeration equipment to be turned off for long periods of time (up to 13 hours) while maintaining stable temperatures in the freezer.

Our TES system works well for new construction, retrofit, or refurbishment projects.

We save our customers 20 to 35% or more on their energy costs (some up to 50%). TES adds efficiencies and flexibility to existing refrigeration systems to avoid peak pricing, reduce overall load, and reduce net consumption. Now cold storage operators and grocery stores can buy, store, and use their energy when it's most economical for them.
Thermal energy storage stabilizes temperatures by reducing the number of temperature fluctuations, dramatically slowing the temperatures' rate of rise, and providing thermal back up resiliency to maintain temperatures 3X longer in the event of a power outage or equipment failure.
TES improves the efficiency of existing refrigeration systems in many ways. 1) increasing the percentage of refrigeration run time during hours with lower ambient temperatures 2) running the compressors at maximum designed efficiency levels 3) consolidating up to 85% of the heat infiltration directly in the refrigeration air flow 4) no additional mechanical components or parasitic energy consumption 5) the PCM’s higher heat transfer rate (eight-times that of frozen food). All of this means more heat is removed using less equipment run time and an average of 26% fewer kWh.
